I’m not sure how it happened, but this skinny jean wearing, lover of the snow is getting big. Too big. I’ve been keeping him all to myself for nearly 5 years and it suddenly hit me that he’s going to school THIS YEAR. I’m happy for him. I know he’s going to love it. He loves his math books, writes more letters than I know what to do with and is really good at art.
But I’m going to miss him.
I love our morning jammie snuggles. How in the afternoon, he tells me he’s so cold and the only thing to warm him up is hot chocolate. I love how he draws me a picture and tells me “Mom, you’re special to me, because I love you”.
He’s in a major Daddy phase and tells me I’m the worst butt wiper in the universe and I still don’t want to spend our days apart.
How in the world am I going to keep myself together when he runs, wearing his tiny backpack, down the street to hang with his friends at the bus stop?
How did my baby, my first little love, grow so fast?
I can't give you an any advice b/c I'm still sitting here in total confusion as to how my first love is old enough for a driver's license.
awwww, I know it is a proud, but so sad, moment! He is seriously so cute!
I completely understand. I am dreading sending my oldest to kindergarten next year, especially since I found out it is full day. I will miss my boy so much. They really do seem to grow up too fast.
I was in that same boat two years ago. Time flies and I miss that time!
OH MY – to think my little 8 month old will be going to school ever FREAKS ME OUT! I cannot imagine how knowing your first babe starts school this year makes you feel!
I hear you! Mine will be going to full time kindergarten in August! I completely understand this. On the one hand I am excited to have more time to do things around the house but gosh I am gonna miss that girl! 5 days a week for 6 hourse a days is a LONG time to be away from Momma! Lord help me!
I'm sorry, but I must be completely honest. I bawled my eyes out when my babies got on the bus for the first time. It's absolutely horrible!

They do grow up ridiculously fast! When I had my firstborn, I thought it would be ages before I had to worry about school…those years flew by!
